        I get to hear one go over my house once or twice a week when the weather is cooperating.

          It's great that Leno has that kind of interest in engines. I don't recall all that chrome being on the engine that won WWII :-). Wassn't operation Chromite during Korea?

            Here's an episode he did with his steam engine from 1832. Quite a piece of machinery!
